March, April & May
This tour takes us on a wild journey through jungles of central India which was Rudyard Kipling’s source of inspiration for his “Jungle Bookâ€. We visit both Kanha and Bandhavgarh National Parks, being rated as the best for tiger spotting the world over but with a difference! Travel from park to park by private chartered flights. Bandhavgarh National Park – Located in the Vindhya mountains, it is a beautiful park with woodlands, rocky hills and grassland valleys. Plenty to see in this small park (168 Sq miles) set around a historic site, with carvings, temples and an ancient fort. It has the highest concentration of tigers in a tourist zone, which are vehicle friendly. Kanha National Park – The horse shoe shaped Kanha valley has sometimes been called the N’Gorongoro of India. Herds of the Kanha miscellany, the axis deer, the blackbuck, the wild pig and occasionally the gaur (Indian Bison) throng the central parkland. With its flourishing herds and relatively tolerant predators, Kanha offers almost unrivalled scope to a keen wildlife photographer.
Taj Safaris' third jungle safari lodge is situated along the banks of the Banjaar River, directly overlooking the heart of Kanha National Park. It consists of 2 elegant camps of 9 suites each. Each suite will feature its own intimate tented sitting area with its own discreetly positioned swimming pool. The camps have its own unique identity, celebrating the Bastar and Dogra art hailed from nearby Chattisgarh. The luxurious, yet lightweight, en-suite tents have been designed in a contemporary style, with pressed bamboo wall panels, gorgeous bamboo floors and locally crafted furniture hewn from the timber of exotic Indian trees. Interiors showcase block-printed cottons and silks that are typical of Madhya Pradesh. Each suite features a private deck overlooking the river. The atmosphere is light, ethereal and organic.Hotel Details
Kanha Earth Lodge lies in 16 acres of natural forest, tucked away in a small hamlet bordering Kanha's buffer zone. Its unique location, 30 minutes from the Khatia/Kisli park gate, ensures that it is close enough for easy access to the park, but still far enough from the glut of hotels lining Kanha's tourist hub, offering a true wilderness experience to the guests. The guests benefit from their incredible location, outstanding hospitality, experienced team of naturalists, and commitment towards conservation and local communities. The 12 luxury bungalows with en suite bathrooms and open verandahs have been inspired by Gond tribal architecture and offer environmentally sensitive, low-impact accommodation through their design and use of local stone and waste wood, while the absence of neighbouring lodges or highways creates an ideal setting for nature walks, birding and cycling trips through the surrounding forest.Hotel Details
